The next three problems refer to the following situation: Suppose that a sample of 15 randomly chosen people were put on a special weight loss diet. The amount of weight lost, in pounds, follows an unknown distribution with mean equal to 12 pounds and standard deviation equal to 3 pounds.
To find the probability that the average of the 15 people lose no more than 14 pounds, the random variable should be:
C
Find the probability asked for in the previous problem.
0.9951
Find the 90th percentile for the average amount of weight lost by 15 people.
12.99
The next five problems refer to the following study: Twenty percent of the students at a local community college live in within five miles of the campus. Thirty percent of the students at the same community college receive some kind of financial aid. Of those who live within five miles of the campus, 75% receive some kind of financial aid.
Find the probability that a randomly chosen student at the local community college does not live within five miles of the campus.
A
Find the probability that a randomly chosen student at the local community college lives within five miles of the campus or receives some kind of financial aid.
B
Based upon the above information, are living in student housing within five miles of the campus and receiving some kind of financial aid mutually exclusive?
